About Us

Welcome to Sunny Gymz. Husband and wife team – Sian and Marty, proud owners since 2007, warmly invite all to pop in to check out what Sunny Gymz has to offer.

In December 2012, Sunny Gymz moved premises – next door to be exact. After almost 30 years in the same building it was a huge transformation moving into a purpose built building. After years of research and planning Sian & Marty have created a wonderful facility to cater for a range of exercise disciplines.

No matter what your fitness level, you’ll feel comfortable at Sunny Gymz – Its your place to train!

The atmosphere is very sociable and friendly, you could meet new friends. Sunny Gymz hosts the Les Mills group fitness aerobic classes, a world-wide phenomenon with over 19,000 clubs performing their classes by over 130,000 instructors in 100 countries. Sunny Gymz is one of these Les Mills licensee clubs and are currently the only facility in the Eastern Bay performing over 15 classes each week with 6 different programmes to suit all fitness levels. The classes are action packed, full of fun, taught by experienced and qualified instructors to uplifting music – and exercising is the bonus! They cover a range of fitness abilities from the beginner to the elite.

Check out our information pages about the classes and our class timetable.

If classes are not your forte, there is a large selection of machine weights, free weights and cardiovascular equipment. The weights room is HUGE with lots of equipment to tone every muscle. The weights room is like no other gym in Whakatane, theres plenty of equipment and SPACE to workout, espcially at those busy times – having to wait for equipment is highly reduced. The cardio area has plenty of bikes, rowers, treadmills, and cross trainers.

The gym has a Air Conditoned studio for RPM (spin bike class). Group Fitness classes are upstairs where there are two spacious studios. In studio 1 is where the Aerobic classes are held & in studio 2 there are circuit & cardio equipment with a Ladies only time Monday to Friday 12noon to 6.30pm. Studio 1 is also available for hire – great for kapa haka, dancing etc.

At the back of the gym there is an out door training area used in the warmer months of the year (when its not raining). This area can be used for tyre flipping, has boxing bags, a multi rack (a smaller version of the one inside), barbells/plates and battle rope.

If you feel you need that extra push and motivation then a popular choice is to consult with one of the certified personal trainers who will personally help you achieve your desired goals. When you first join the gym, you can get a complementary consultation with a trainer so they design an exercise reigme to suit your health & fitness goals – these trainers are also available during our staffed hours if you need help with your technique, spotting when doing heavy weighted exercises & any other help with your training.

Sunny Gymz is wheelchair accessible on the ground floor including showers/toilets.
